The Great Plains Bicycling Club is Lincoln, Nebraska's recreational bicycling club. We organize rides in and around Lincoln, promote cycling and bicycle safety, publish a newsletter, and much more. We welcome all recreational riders to join us on our rides and in our other activities.
We want this to be a website that people in Lincoln and Nebraska can rely upon for information about recreational cycling. We want to know of any Nebraska-area rides that aren't in our listings. If you are aware of a recreational ride that is not listed, please contact the webmaster and provide a description and other details.
